Ken Follett’s ‘Winter of the World’ to be published in September 2012

Following is an email I received from the best selling author Ken Follett, announcing the provisional date of publishing of the second novel in the ‘Century’ trilogy, and a mini series based on his book, World Without End.

Dear Shana,

Happy New Year! I hope that it will be the best yet for you.

I will have a new book out later this year. Winter of the World – the sequel to Fall of Giants – is a story about a group of families in the dramatic events leading up to World War II, and during that tumultuous conflict itself.

There is an American family, a German family, a Russian family and two British families, and their desires and ambitions, and the events of the day, shape their relationships and fates in extraordinary ways.

Winter of the World, the second novel in my ‘Century’ trilogy, is due to be published in many countries in September 2012. Around the time of publication, I’m planning to visit the USA, Spain, Italy, France, Germany and several other countries.

This year will also see the release of the eight-hour TV mini-series of World Without End. From what I’ve seen so far, it is going to be every bit as good as The Pillars of the Earth mini-series that was screened worldwide two years ago.

I really appreciate the feedback I get from my readers. Please get in touch with me through my web site, on my Facebook page or via Twitter.

Best wishes and good reading!

    I frankly thought that the sequel would be less British-centric and might include characters from more nationalities than the previous ones like from the nations that were colonies that time. But seems that Mr. Follett wishes to linger on… 🙁

    I will read the novel though and I am waiting for it too release (though with a bit less enthusiasm).
